Spirit Week- Wednesday

Today was another day full of spirit. Teagan got the chance to dress up for Fancy Day, hey there decision not mine. I think this worked better for girls than boys. While I picked him up from school today it was evident that the little girls enjoyed it. There were many a princess to be seen. So we went simple and had Teagan dress in a shirt and tie. Of course he was very handsome.

Spirit Week- Tuesday

Today was another adventure in getting Teagan in a costume for Spirit Week. All I can say is thank goodness for puffy paints that are many years old and are not all dried up. So today was Pirate Day, ARG MATEY!

Teagan really like his outfit. I am glad I could provide something for him. On the way home today he said that most of his friends didn't dress up. He told them that their moms need to make something up for them, one replied she doesn't have a sewing machine. I laughed, because I don't either but I still managed to come up with something.

Spirit Week- Monday

This week is Spirit Week at Teagan's school, can you see the fingers waving!!! Today was Western Day, and I had to get my cowboy all geared up. When you do not have funds it is time to get creative, so I made some spurs out of cardboard and covered them in foil. They worked until he left and smashed them. Oh well, he had fun!

A Merry Christmas

We had a very quiet Christmas this year, only one other house to travel too. It was nice to be in our own home for the holiday, even if we had barely moved in. Teagan was SO EXCITED this year. He was the first to wake, and I wish I had a camera for his reaction when he came into our room to inform us Santa had come. He put his hands on his cheeks and said, "Mom, Santa came I am soooooooooooooo excited!" It was very cute. Then he runs back and gets all the gifts into piles for who they belong too. I am so mean I made him put them back under the tree. We waited until my mom and step dad came and joined us for breakfast. The boys were really patient waiting for them too. The boys opened up their gifts from Santa and were very happy. After breakfast Brian's Mom, Grandma, and sister came over to see the kids. Later that day we went over to Brian's step dads for dinner. It was nice and relaxing. I love the holidays and with the move it was a little crazy this year. I can't wait until next year and then it will be more enjoyable and we can really celebrate and remember why we have this time of year.

We had a busy December as most people do. Teagan had his school performance. So cute. We had multiple Christmas gatherings. My sister moved to Florida. We went to the temple lights. Then of course Christmas day. On top of it all we also moved into our new home. So yes it was a crazy month. Here are a bunch of pictures. I will post about Christmas day on another post entirely.
For my Mom's side we went to Rocking R Ranch. We had dinner and a show. It was so much FUN!
Here is the entire gang.
Here is the stage and singing fun.
Here is our princess. So cute.
The boys wanted to wear this Santa hat but it was a little small for them. It looks great on Miss Ashlyn though.
My cousin Jordan and his towel. He will never have cold ears again when there is a towel around.
All the boys cousins.
My Uncle made homemade root beer. So good. The kids loved the dry ice.
Rayle and Santa. Okay so when you are 3 years old and you go to see Santa, apparently you expect that Santa will have the present that you want right there. Oh my the fit he through when he did not get that batman suit that day.
Teagan and Santa.
All the kiddos. Ashlyn could care less for Santa.
Here is Teagan and half of the kindergarten classes. They have so many children they spilt the performances into two nights.
Here is Teagan lined up to go on stage. He was so excited.
